Winter



This is the third journal quilt I've finished in the 12 x 12 inch format. My goal is to finish something every week for 2008. I continue to be interested in trees and line. In looking at my sketchbook, I noticed that trees have been a recurring motif. I feel as if there is much more territory to explore. Can this be a series? In this piece I experimented with monoprinting with acrylic paint on a Plexiglas plate.

Good for you, I will keep sending encouraging thoughts and hope they will reinforce your resolve. One a week is a big committment, but if Jeanne Williamson can do it, so can you. Do you read her blog? http://jeannewilliamson.blogspot.com/

I love your tree series! I hope to do more experimental work this year also, but don't think I can keep up with you.

Another terrific tree piece in your series.

This is beautiful, Joan. I love my woods and they, too, have started to be a series of sorts.

You are so disciplined -- one a week seems like a lot, but if you are determined, you'll do it!
